Last weekend K and I went to a pow-wow. What a cool thing, I can't believe that I have never searched this out before. I think we stood there for 4 hours with our mouths wide open. The costumes, and the dancing and the singing, and the drums OH the drums. I still have the beat in my head, and it's been a week. Here is a little video I made of some of the dancing and with a recording Kyle caught on my iphone.

I was a little camera shy... but I did manage to get a couple good ones.

Ok, see the little boy on the left side? This image was taken during the singing/drum competition, and this little guy was competing along side these men. He watched the caller like a hawk to be sure he was singing the right thing, I have never seen anyone put as much heart and soul into singing. When they finished the song he did a little fist bump with all the men.

Very cool! Growing up, since we lived so close to the reservation, we used to go to Mescalero every now and then to watch. I forget what they called it, something like "Dance of the Sun" or something like that. Anyway it was a really neat experience. I love the colors!
